Bruce James SoultetYours, Mine, and the Truth
Massaging the 88 and growling Tom Waits gravel, local piano man Bruce James leads his fivepiece Soultet on a smoky sojourn of classic soul that gives three sides of the story: Yours, Mine, and the Truth. Recorded live in an eight-hour session, the originals nod to Donny Hathaway and Dr. John, while Les McCann gets the cover treatment on a jazzy marathon of "Compared to What."
